  • The 'Improper' Feminineby Lyn Pykett

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 54.95

    The women's sensation novel of the 1860s and the New Woman fiction of the 1890s were two major examples of a perceived feminine invasion of fiction which caused a critical furore in their day. Both genres, with their shocking, `fast' heroines, fired the popular imagination by putting female sexuality on the literary agenda and undermining the `proper... more...

  • Aesthetes and Decadents of the 1890sby Karl Beckson

    Chicago Review Press 2005; US$ 17.99

    The Aesthetic and Decadent Movement of the late 19th century spawned the idea of "Art for Art's Sake," challenged aesthetic standards and shocked the bourgeosie.

  • Agatha Christie: Power and Illusionby R.A. York

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 110.00

    This study shows how she sought to reconcile her attachment to the Victorian past with her recognition of a new society that undermined established order and in doing so gave more opportunities to women, confused class-boundaries, extended tolerance, allowed the cult of pleasure and self-assertion and revealed the ambiguities of respectability. more...

  • Alfred and Emilyby Doris Lessing

    HarperCollins 2009; US$ 12.99

    I think my father's rage at the trenches took me over, when I was very young, and has never left me. Do children feel their parents' emotions? Yes, we do, and it is a legacy I could have done without. What is the use of it? It is as if that old war is in my own memory, my own consciousness. In this extraordinary book, the 2007 Nobel Laureate Doris... more...

  • Anglophone Jewish Literatureby Axel Stähler

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    Anglophone Jewish literature is not traditionally numbered among the new literatures in English. Rather, Jewish literary production in English has conventionally been classified as ?hyphenated? and has therefore not yet been subjected as such to the scrutiny of scholars of literary or cultural history. The collection of essays addresses this lack... more...

  • Bluestockings Now!by Professor Deborah Heller; Professor Jack Lynch; Professor Eugenia Zuroski Jenkins

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Bringing together top specialists in the field, this edited volume challenges the theory that the eighteenth-century British intellectual women known as the Bluestockings were an isolated phenomenon spanning the period from the 1750s through the 1790s.
